Delicious! I've had grilled cheese tomato sandwiches many times, but never with the addition of onion, and it was fabulous! I used whole wheat bread, everything else was as written. Served with corn on the cob this was a perfect end-of-summer dinner. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a sauté pan cook onion slice until softened and starting to caramelize.
  2. Butter one side each of the bread slices.
  3. Build sandwich like a traditional grilled cheese, 1 slice bread butter side down, cheese slice, onions and tomato, cheese slice, and bread slice butter side up.
  4. Place in sauté pan over medium heat and cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Flip sandwich over, if you have a panini press now is the time to use it! If not, pressing down firmly with a spatula works well also. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Cut in half and sprinkle with sea salt.
  7. Be careful, tomatoes will be hot!
